Seratones: Get Gone (Fat Possum)

Indie-infused garage rock and blues with a psychedelic glint.

TODO alt text

Louisiana’s Seratones explore a musical hybrid rooted in swampy blues, psychedelic garage rock and punk-injected energy, shaped by an imaginative indie spirit. The band’s broad musical vision perfectly fits their Fat Possum label, which started out with blues before morphing into an indie-centric music label that signed up The Black Keys.

Get Gone is a tumble dryer full of retro ideas given a contemporary currency by their restless drive, which evades categorisation. Vocalist AJ Haynes evokes Grace Slick on Choking On Your Spit, Amy Winehouse on the majestic Tide, Lene Lovich on Trees and even Kate Bush on Take It Easy. She finally reveals her true self on the ballad Keep Me, while Don’t Need It perfects their garage-style bluster.
